Dr. George Tiller of Wichita, Kansas, was a faithful churchgoer and a father of four. He was also one of the only doctors in the country who performed third-trimester abortions for women, and on Sunday, May 31, 2009, he was assassinated while serving as an usher for the morning worship service at his church. He was the eighth American abortion clinic worker to be assassinated since Roe v. Wade.
Now there are only four American doctors left who openly provide third--trimester abortions. After Tiller paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians.
Dr. LeRoy Carhart, in Maryland, Dr. Warren Hern, in Colorado,
Dr. Susan Robinson and Dr. Shelley Sella, in Albuquerque, NM
They have become the new number--one targets of the anti--abortion movement, yet continue to risk their lives every day to do work that many believe is murder, but which they believe is profoundly important for their patients’ lives.
The award winning film, After Tiller, weaves together revealing, in--depth interviews with the doctors with intimate scenes from their lives and inside their clinics, where they counsel and care for their anxious, vulnerable patients at an important crossroads in their lives. By sharing the moving stories of several of these patients, After Tiller illuminates the experiences of women who seek abortions later in pregnancy and the reasons why they do so.
